TEDxUCL – MARCOS CRUZ – LIVING BUILDINGS – ARCHITECTURE’S PATH TO ECOLOGY

Marcos Cruz is the Director of the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. His investigations about Neoplasmatic Architecture, which focused on a contemporary discussion about the body and the impact of bio-technology on architecture, won the RIBA President’s Research Award for Outstanding PhD Thesis in 2008. Cruz’s research concerns the different conceptions of flesh, the place of the body in architecture and our understanding of ‘urbanism’. His research is dedicated to a future vision of the body in architecture, questioning our ‘human flesh’ and its altered relationship with a new contemporary ‘architectural flesh’.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
